How remote? I am hoping to avoid running across too many drive-in campsites etc.
-You hike to pre-arranged campsites only you and your party on it. Usually on other sites around for kilometers, ie., the whole lake to your self.
-no dive in-camp sites on the trail at all
-it is classified a wilderness park.
-hiking or canoeing only.
How busy was the trail in your experience? What time of year were you there?
-you might see 0-6 hikers on the tail a day.
-I like Aug -Sept, no bugs, warm days, cool nights.
Assuming the usual mosquito and no-see-um seasons. I'm considering mid-September.
-No problem with bugs in Sept, I don't bring bug juice at all,
Would you assume bushwhacking opportunities?
-you can, I have not, the trail is, for the most part, well marked.
Site says 7 - 10 days for 70 km. Seems a little much. What was your experience?
-70 Kms is the way the birds fly.
-I belive it is just shy of 100kms.
-I did it in 7 days, but I would like to slow down next time (9 days).
-The sites, wildlife and experience are some of the best in Ontario.
-I find in general I am in no hurry to get out of there in general
The trail in pimarily along the ridge of a billion year old mountain range. At one time the mountain where larger than the Rockies.
There is a hundred or so car camping sites at the main gate.
The park is primarliy a canoe park, the trail in September would be nearly empty.
(the map & trail book are a must)
All the best,
